JL fuck you!!

Hope race direction gives him a good wag of the finger LOLz! talks shit about safe riding but that crap he pulled on Pedrosa was not cool.... if you saw Pedrosa's leathers after the race before the podium he showed how he was scuffed up on both sides!


Only thing I was afraid of was Bautista taking someone out hahaha!

also thought race direction investigation on 99 was a bit over dramatic.

great season. awe inspiring efforts by lorenzo


also smith has really come on strong. i think the surprise of the season. nobody gave him any respect. he has done well. better than cal as a rookie

The first 10 laps were awesome! Jorge and Dani had a fantastic battle. Jorge won more races (9) than Marc (6), but still lost the title. No one has ever won that many races and still lost the title. He did everything he could this year to overcome his mistakes that resulted in injury. He is awesome.

But Marc is amazing! Fantastic stuff. History made. Youngest GP champion in history.

Have not seen either battle like that since 250 days when they swapped paint a lot with each other

yeah i thought it was a good race from start to finish. how any times did jorge and pedrosa trade places?

and i agree that bradley improved tons from the beginning of the season. like he figured, 'ok this bike is a little different,' then made his adjustments and jjust kept getting better. hate to see what happens with cal on the duc next year

What kind of Bike is Nicky on w/Honda? - "Production Based" - Is that a fancy CRT? - Is that the new "racing"?

CRT is dead. The new class is called Open. There will be 3 tiers now. Factory, Satellite and basically privateer.

Here is the bike. Only .3 off the factory bike.

the only reason dani passed jorge is because jorge allowed him. thats not a battle. that is jorge playing with the field waiting for the second tier riders to get involved. when he saw vale still couldnt do shit even with lorenzo running 1.5 seconds off the pace he eventually saw there was no hope and walked the field.

Three tiers:

Factory
Satellite
Open

FTR, for example, will be running the following:

The Forward Yamaha package, originally labelled as just an engine supply, will now include the engine, frame and swing-arm, with FTR supplying the remaining components. Unlike the factory Yamahas, at the official team and Tech 3, the Forward bikes will run the full control ECU system - hardware and software - allowing four extra litres of race fuel and twelve rather than five engines changes.

The main thing is now the production class can use a shit load more engines through the year and also a lot more fuel. That's huge.

^ The trade-off is that the open class has to use the Dorna ECU.

wow... rebuilding from the ground up. could be interesting.

also, glad to see CRT is 'dead.' didn't make sense to me, except to fill up the grid with bikes.

even if then 'new' class has to use the Dorna ecu, i think we'll have a more level playing field.

can't wait for the new season!
